What is the Most Beautiful Scottish Mountain?

Phil Packer and Kate Silverton climb the National 3 Peaks for Sport Relief

A while ago I found myself in the delicious position of being in the Highlands of Scotland, armed with a hire car, bivvy bag and packraft, and with nowhere particularly to go.

The situation screamed out “Road Trip!” A quick request on Twitter and Facebook as to the Top 5 Most Beautiful Scottish Mountains came up with some real gems. You should try to check some of them out for yourselves…

  • Sean Newall I like Ben lui a lot. Got a alpine look to it. Really needs to be covered in snow though. Great wee pub for drink afterwards nearby too!
  • Mark Cooper I wouldnt bother with Nevis, never get a view from the top, Ben Lui is very nice, get to Mull Al, beautiful on the western islands. When you coming up?

  • Martin Radoczi I love Meall a’ Bhuiridh in Glen Coe.

  1. Slioch from Loch Maree is stunning. Or there is Liathach rated by many hillwalkers as Scotland’s finest mountain. It strikes me the best ones are real close to each other by Torridon and over to loch Maree and the Fisherfield wilderness.
